What about when the local healthcare system is so broken that "following the rules" has left you in a category of easily ignored/forgotten patients? The barriers in place to receive quality/consistant healthcare are only addressed in theory. I have yet to see a single measure that has improved healthcare at the patient level. I for one, am sick of those parading through the media who accomplish nothing except for the lining of pockets at the executive and administration levels.
